ChatGPT quickly went viral after it was released in November. But the startup behind it, OpenAI, has other AI products too.
Just months earlier, OpenAI removed the waitlist for its generative AI art generator, DALL-E, which grew to over 1.5 million daily users.
The tool sparked controversy among artists who debated what DALL-E, and other AI art generators like it, could mean for people in creative jobs.
Like DALL-E, ChatGPT has generated controversy itself, and even kickstarted a race among large tech companies like Google and Microsoft to develop their own, more powerful AI tools. OpenAI is now collaborating with Microsoft on a new version of Bing that includes an AI chatbot “more powerful” than ChatGPT. Like OpenAI’s product, the new Bing has created drama of its own.
With ChatGPT, OpenAI’s success seems unstoppable for now. Take a look at some of the startup’s other AI products.
Just months before ChatGPT launched, OpenAI removed the waitlist for its generative AI art generator, DALL-E. It quickly grew to over 1.5 million daily users.
The tool — which quickly creates imaginative and detailed artwork via a text prompt — sparked controversy among artists who debated what DALL-E and other AI art generators like it could mean for people in creative jobs.
The AI art generator creates original images called “generations” from detailed text prompts input by a person. You can write detailed prompts such as the one above — “astronaut fish swimming in an ocean in outer space, digital art” — and specify an art style or even reference a specific artist like Vincent Van Gogh.
You can also edit “generations” on DALL-E using one of the credits the program gives you each month, and upload your own photos to create images from.
Whisper is an automatic speech recognition model that transcribes speech to text, and can identify and translate multiple languages to English. The model can transcribe in multiple languages too.
The system was trained on 680,000 hours of multilingual and multitask supervised data collected from the internet, according to OpenAI.
In examples on its product page, Whisper transcribes an almost 30-second long audio of quick-spoken text, a clip of a K-pop song, an audio clip of spoken French, and an audio clip of someone speaking with a strong accent.
The model can interpret simple commands input by a user. OpenAI says Codex is a “general-purpose programming model,” which means it can be used for “essentially any programming task,” although its results can vary. OpenAI said it’s successfully used Codex “for transpilation, explaining code, and refactoring code.”
OpenAI has some examples of how Codex works, including using the model to program a space-themed game, and giving a computer spoken commands to edit a Word document.
